I've also made it a point to ensure that there's something here for everyone, from the minimalist to the full-on data geek, so strap in and get ready to dig through the best weather widgets currently available on Android. As you would expect, you can choose from Celsius or Fahrenheit for your temp, and you can also set your speed units and well as a distance measuring preference.
Really, my only issue with this release is the fact that you can't remove the app's advertisements, though this hardly interferes with the title's widgets. Of course, the downside of this app is that you'll be using a Yahoo release, but besides that, this is a competent weather app supported by advertisements.
You can expect to find seven weather widgets, and they range in size from 1×2, 2×2, and 5×2. So if you're into theming your device, you may want to go with a weather app that offers better customization options for its widgets.
To Talent Team Weather is one of the more generic apps in today's list, but I'm happy to report that it indeed offers some exceptional widgets. Of course, the majority displays your current weather temp and conditions, though if you delve into the rest, you'll see that flip clocks, extended weather reports, not to mention the date, are all present in one form or another.
Hands down 1Weather has some best weather widgets available currently, though the app's accuracy can be hit or miss when compared to the competition. I've jumped back and forth between many weather apps over the years, and I always seem to return to AccuWeather for one reason or another.
While these reports aren't perfect, I do find that AccuWeather is the most accurate app for my area. You'll have a choice of dark or white backgrounds for the 4×1 widgets, and you can manually set the transparency, along with the refresh interval, text color, and temperature type (real feel or the standard temp).
So while the widget options are limited, you can customize them a good bit to better fit with your device's theme. CARROT Weather is easily one of the best -looking apps in our list today and is a competent replacement for Dark Sky, a gorgeous weather app that was purchased by Apple.
Besides the exceptional art design of this release, the app offers an entertaining hook. For the most part, these are simple widgets that offer the current temp, the highs and lows for the day, and of course, a snarky dose of text within the widget that makes looking at your screen a pleasure.
There are also a few widgets with backgrounds that will change appearance according to your local forecast. Window is a free weather app that contains advertisements and in- app purchases, though there is also a premium version for those with the change to spare.
This means you can expect a full-fledged weather app, and it offers five separate widgets. For the most part, you can't really customize these widgets, so translucent blue better be one of your favorite colors.
All in all, Weather News & Radar Maps is a solid offering, though I'm personally not a fan of the app's recurring subscription fees to remove advertisements. Just keep in mind that in order to test this app, you'll have to sign up for recurring fees, though you won't be charged for the first three days.
Currently, Weather Underground only offers one widget, and it's 2×2 in size. Still, if you're looking for a simple widget backed up by an app with a nice design, you could do a lot worse than Weather Underground.
I've taken to using Radar Weather Radar as a supplementary weather app to my current install of AccuWeather, and find that the combo is my perfect setup. What's odd is that the app's widget doesn't offer anything that has to do with the radar map, and so instead, you can choose from 4 separate 1×1 widgets that cover current wind, rain, temp, and daily highs and lows.
So if you're the sort that prefers a screen that isn't busy, Radar Weather Radar is probably what you're looking for. Best of all, Apply Weather offers a clean UI that's a worthwhile replacement for the now-defunct Dark Sky.
Autumn has arrived in many parts of the globe, and it brought rain as well. Well, no matter if it's going to rain, snow, or the sun will dominant all day, it's always good to know what to expect.

Those of you with phones that have AMOLED displays will especially like this app due to its dark theme. A lot of effort was put into the design of this app to make it look as good as it does.
The colorful icons and data visuals are set against a black background which makes everything very easy to read at a glance. The design utilizes easy to read icons and weather backgrounds so you can quickly get an idea of the conditions.
All the traditional features, such as a wide variety of forecasts, live radar, severe weather alerts, and more. The unique feature is called “Minutest,” which shows precipitation on a minute-by-minute basis.
Dark Sky was a popular iOS-only app for a long time, but it’s available on Android now too. The one big catch with Dark Sky is the $2.99 per year subscription for premium features.
It even has a widget called “At a glance.” This is a great option if you just need a simple weather solution. It may not be the best -designed weather app in the Play Store, but it’s chock-full of highly detailed weather information.
It claims to be powered by the “world’s largest network of professional weather stations.” Some features in Weathering that you won’t find in other apps include heat index, pollen count, and UV index.
